At first I wasn't sure about the switch from my pc,but the more I use the imac the more I like it. I still have a few things to learn about it. imacs just are more stable than any pc I have had.
I have switched to a wireless Logitech keyboard and mouse,just can't get the hang of the mac mouse.
The only problem i've had so far is finding as much software as pc's have.How ever if you want to install windows on your imac it can run both operating systems. The programs that came installed on my imac work excellent and are very well advanced for photography(which is my main hobby) It is so nice to not have all those wires hanging all over the desk and I think it is the best looking monitor on the market.
If you are in doubt about switching to a Mac from a pc,take my word for it very easy. If I did it almost any one can. I am retired and have very little computer knowledge.
It's really a close call, possibly coming down to as small a matter as the sales tax charged by Apple Store. If you factor in the latter, the Amazon deal with the rebate is still almost a hundred less than Apple Store's best price (to students and educators). But if you're serious about purchasing and installing Leopard, they're practically even, with Apple Store pricing out at about 20 less. On the other hand, if you factor in Amazon Visa's 3-point per dollar incentive, Amazon (computer + Leopard) comes in at 20 under Apple Store's best price. But what about the intangibles? Frankly, I like Amazon better than Apple Store, Bezos better than Jobs. Amazon's return policy is more "no-nonsense" with less small print, they don't try to hit you up with all of the "extra's" (extended service contracts, added RAM, Airport, etc.), and unlike Apple Store they're not going to have employees calling you on the phone pushing a service contract or selling more time on the one you have. The choice is clear if you're not a student or educator: go with Amazon. If you're a scholar or pedagogue, it's admittedly a closer call.Read more ›
The one thing I found little inconvenient to use is the Apple mighty mouse. May be because I am so used to the Microsoft mouse.
Please go ahead and enjoy the iMac user experience. These computers are very desirable to own.....
Now that you've read my diatribe, to the good stuff we go. I bought the 20" iMac with the 2.4 GHz processor. I opted to add an additional gig of memory - bringing the RAM up to 2GHz. This computer is amazing! I don't know why it took me so long to see the light. Every application is lightning-fast and easy to use. During my computer research, I consulted many friends who own Macs and highly recommeneded them. At first, I was a bit apprehensive toward learning an entirely new computer system. I can say now, however, those fears have been put completely to rest. The computer itself is incredibly intuitive and I really get a sense that it "knows" what you are hoping to accomplish when you are trying to install or download something. For example, I remember installing my printer on the laptop. This required me to download the software and appropriate driver from a CD to get the printer. When I plugged this same printer into the Mac, it recognized it immediately and was ready to print. Amazing!Read more ›
